Use +1/+1 counter both to beat down and as a resource. Working on a minor artifact subtheme. Suggestions welcome!

28 of the creature will ETB with power 2 or less. There's also Growth Spasm, Arachnogenesis and Khalni Garden and Foundry of the counsuls. However, especially helpful are Cultivator of Blades, Whirler Rogue, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter, Spawnwrithe, Thrummingbird and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard.
Turn counters and high power into...

Draw: Mindless Automaton, Zameck Guildmage, Cold-Eyed Selkie, Rishkar's Expertise

Mana: Gyre Sage, Devoted Druid

Creatures: Thopter Squadron, Triskelavus, Animation Module

Removal: Triskelion, Triskelavus, Simic Manipulator (Gaining control is my favorite kind of removal!)

Lots Of Damage: Cultivator of Blades, Wild Beastmaster, Dragon Throne of Tarkir, Champion of Lambholt

Interesting note: Champion of Lambholt + Animation Module = As many robot buddies as you have mana for

Dragon Throne of Tarkir: A repeating Overwhelming Stampede is spicy, but it's slow. really just needs more testing.
Clone: There's a lot of better copy creatures out there. I just need to get around to obtaining them.
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter: Occasionally she's MVP, occasionally I activate her a grand total of Once.
Strionic Resonator: Works well with Ezuri and a lot of other stuff.
Panharmonicon: Works well with Ezuri and a lot of other stuff.
Vorel of the Hull Clade: Works well with... yeah.
Hangarback Walker, Hooded Hydra, Chasm Skulker: Similar effects that help recover from mass removal and are helped out by Ezuri.
Walking Ballista: It's Walking Ballista. This and Hangarback would merit Trinket Mage's inclusion.
Thopter Spy Network: Would frequently be active with all the artifacts I want to add, resulting in experience every upkeep, a lot of evasive attackers and a bunch of card draw.
Arcbound Reclaimer: Hey, counters and artifacts!
Inventors' Fair: Again, lots of artifacts, and tutors are good.
Whir of Invention: Ditto, but the triple blue makes me hesitant.

(What will I remove for all these big dreams? Eh, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it)

(i know that 80s Yes wasn't the best but the name fits)
